Library Modernization and Construction


The Library Modernization Committee and Architect presented their updated renderings for the new Library to the Town Council on October 23, 2017.(See below) It sets forth more detail on the interior space and renderings for the back of the Library. In addition to adding another level, the new Library will remove the slope in front making it ADA accessible and help blend the 1970s addition with the historical character of the other buildings and Downtown.

The Modernization Committee recommended the Town fund the final design phase for construction documents in the amount of $435,000 from the Waste Management Fund. The Fund balance is over $12.5 million. The Council unanimously voted in favor of the expenditure to complete this phase of the Library Modernization plans.

While the construction documents are being drafted over the coming months, I will be working with our Finance Department and Board to coordinate financing of the Project, which is complicated by the State’s budget problems. We have a great team though and I am sure we will continue to move this Project forward.

To that end, the Modernization Committee was expanded from 9 to 15 members. As we get into the construction phase, we are calling any interested members in the Community with a background in construction or fundraising to reach out to me to serve on this important Committee. Please email mayor@newmilford.org

This Project has been in the works for over 20 years. With the momentum gained in the past two years, we can break ground in 2018. Thank you to everyone that has and continues to support the Library.

Mayor David Gronbach
